Ria Moore, my loving partner, died the evening of June 4, 1994. She left us at the age of 48, only after a year long battle with cancer.

Ria was born on June 16, 1945 in Steenwyk, Holland, to John and Anne Katers. After having lived in both Holland and Indonesia, she moved to Edmonton, Canada in 1956. On May 6, 1967, we were married. Our son, Brett, was born in Edmonton on December 26, 1972, followed by a daughter, Andrea on May 16, 1974. After periods in Calgary and Los Angeles, our family moved to our current home in Salt Lake City.Throughout her life, Ria was dedicated to the love and support of her family and friends. Her tireless and unwavering love has produced the strongest of families, her strength of character many enduring friendships.

Ria is survived by her parents, John and Anne Katers, Edmonton, Canada; husband, Douglas; children, Brett and Andrea, Salt Lake City.

Memorial services will be held at Wasatch Lawn Mortuary Chapel, 3401 South Highland Drive, at 2 p.m., Wednesday, June 8, 1994. Following the services, friends are invited to join the family at our home in a celebration of Ria's life.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the American Cancer Society.

Ria will be returned to her home in Edmonton where funeral services and interment will be held on Friday, June 10.
